The Viewport color of your object and the diffuse color of your material are separate things in blender. You can set the viewport color of your material separately.

Expand the Settings tab under your Material settings and change the viewport color:

A quick side note: the viewport color doesn't affect the render result in any way. its primary function is to structure your scene.

Select all the faces you want to be a different material, I use Ctrl+L to quickly select larger groups of connected faces, Click the assign button just beneath the material list, and then change the display method to Material to see the colors as they are set on the various materials.

enter image description here

2.8 workbench some features coming out to differentiate objects with color ids which looks great!
